March is full of newsy goodness!
Hello, friends and fellow music lovers!
I am SO EXCITED about March because that means I get to play and sing with She’s Speaking Live…it’s an absolute dream come true!
Here’s our closing number from last year with the ever-powerful First Lady of Portland Blues and Oregon Music Hall of Fame honoree LaRhonda Steele leading us! I can’t believe get to sing with this kick-ass band!!
We have four very special Shes’ Speaking Live shows we have coming up in March in celebration of Women’s History Month! If you are anywhere near these cities, I hope you’ll join us! And if you are not close by, thank you for cheering us on from afar! If you are interested, there are lots of other ways to get involved! Here is all the info…
Join us for four special evenings of a celebration of women in song! Eight phenomenal Oregon women songwriters backed by a kick-ass band will share original songs inspired by women and pay tribute to some of their musical sheroes. This inspiring collaboration will touch your heart and get your toes tapping while honoring the power of women’s voices and stories.
Started during the shutdown in 2020 by Oregon singer-songwriters Bre Gregg, Kristen Grainger, and Beth Wood, She’s Speaking creates forums/spaces where women’s voices and artistry can be heard by all people.

Also here’s a website I created for all things She’s Speaking.
And here’s a fun video we made about our mission and our first ever life concert last year!
Co-founder Kristen Grainger had this to say in a recent interview: “”We want to be a visible, joyful, strong and compelling example for anyone, not just young girls,” Grainger said. “Young boys need to see important, meaningful contributions to music by women, too.” HECK YES!!!
This collaboration has been an infinite source of joy and inspiration for me! I hope to see you out there at one of these shows!
